State Representative Greg Markkanen has reiterated his support for removing the gray wolf from the Federal Endangered and Threatened Species List in Michigan.
Markkanen testified before the House Natural Resources Committee yesterday. He noted that the initial goal when the wolves were given protection was to increase their population to at least 100 in Wisconsin and Michigan. He said the two-state estimate now tops 1,000.
The resolution he proposed to encourage the federal government to delist the gray wolf (HR 87) was passed by the committee, and advances to the full House.
